Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons: What others are predicting

Atlanta finished second in the National Football League in total yardage per game, trailing only the New Orleans Saints. Now, the NFL's final four take the stage to determine who moves on to Super BowlLI.

No one stands to gain more on Sunday than Quinn - the only coach in this group who hasn't won a Super Bowl. These games should be very interesting.

I'm here to tell you: I believe in the Falcons' Brotherhood. Try me again, see what happens.

If Michael can't go, starter Ty Montgomery and fullback Aaron Ripkowski will be expected to carry the load for the Packers' ground game against the Falcons.

Despite starting 4-6, Rodgers was able to salvage Green Bay's season and he has the Packers rolling. Life-long falcons fan Rob Fischer now lives in Texas and flies in for Falcons games five or six times a year.

The narrative on what it takes to beat Atlanta has been all wrong. Entering the divisional playoffs, they were scoring 35 points per game at the Georgia Dome and proceeded to put up 36 points on the Seattle Seahawks' No. 3 scoring defense. That team wouldn't have been Dallas, and it certainly wasn't Seattle. So they placed a $300 bet on Green Bay beating Philadelphia, and after the Packers won, they kept rolling the winnings into another bet every week and have not lost.

It's the NFL's two hottest quarterbacks in a dream matchup for the right to go to the Super Bowl and engage in another dramatic quarterback showdown.

The Atlanta Falcons are playing as well as they have all season. What makes it even more magical is that it was made drawn up in the huddle.

"I think you are asking me if I've just become an offensive coach", Quinn said with a chortle on Thursday when it was suggested that defences are barely a sidebar for this game.

Green Bay is dealing with a battered secondary that managed to contain Odell Beckham Jr. of the Giants in the wild-card game, but was torched by Cowboys star Dez Bryant.

As talented as Jones is, I think the difference in Sunday's game will be the Falcons' running backs.

What's the story with Ben Affleck? 'Live by Night,' he hopes
The episode airs later Tuesday (Jan. 10). "You cast the 14th lead in these movies and the Internet goes insane ", Affleck says. Although Affleck didn't get any answers write, he did name Swift's latest album, 1989.

When finally queried about perhaps the biggest play that preceded the bigger play that all anyone wanted to talk about, Rodgers had a two-word answer.

Defensively, the Packers ranked 22nd in the league in total yards surrendered and finished 21st in points allowed, giving up just over 24 points per game.

The Packers quarterback isn't the only one playing at an MVP-level this season.

The resolution was sponsored by Atlanta City Councilmember Ivory Lee Young, Jr., District 3, home of the Georgia Dome and now the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The most notable thing he doesn't have, that the other three elite quarterbacks still standing do have, is a Super Bowl ring.

With Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, and Le'Veon Bell, the Pittsburgh Steelers have the potential to be one of the most lethal offenses in the NFL.

Similar to the Packers' defense, the Steelers' unit has not been the best this season, but they have rounded into form as of late. It won't be a walk in the park for New England. The early line of New England -5.5 was weak and standing at -6 now only invites more Patriots money all through the weekend. As the highest remaining seed (No. 1), they are the favorites to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Foxborough this week and also the current Super Bowl favorites. Linebackers Lawrence Timmons and Ryan Shazier lead the unit that will seek to use multiple different looks and blitzes to keep Brady off his game.

It's only fitting it's the Steelers and Patriots for the AFC title.

Taking the Lamar Hunt Trophy from Bill Belichick and Tom Brady in Foxborough has to be maybe the most daunting challenge in all of sports.

Meanwhile, the two quarterbacks are scorching.
